“By combining a genuinely non-partisan perspective on human languages with uncompromising formal rigor, Maria Bittner succeeds in separating what is particular to individual languages from what is truly universal to human language and thought. An unparalleled achievement and a milestone in the history of semantics.”
-Hans Kamp, University of Stuttgart, Germany 

“Bittner combines insightful linguistic analysis of four very different languages with the construction of a logic, Update with Centering, tailored to their varied semantic and referential needs, and the definition of a grammar formalism according to which logical forms can be constructed compositionally directly from the surface forms of their sentences in context.  Her book is a shining example of linguistics as a cognitive science, and will be read by computer scientists, psychologists, and linguists.”
-Mark Steedman, University of Edinburgh, UK
